According to the latest report from several Tesla owners, Tesla can now fetch and detect if you are using Autopilot cheating equipment is used in automatic driving. Tesla said you need to put your hands if the Autopilot or Full Self-Driving (FSD) Beta.
Tesla’s existing models are going to only detect whether the steering wheel is rotating, so Tesla requires car owners to adjust the steering wheel frequently after turning on the Autopilot mode.
This vulnerability has also spawned various cheating tools. Tesla owners can trick Autopilot’s driver-monitoring system by sticking a water bottle in the steering wheel, or buying some custom-made devices to apply some pressure. NHTSA even had to intervene to ban the sale of such devices.
